We had the good fortune of connecting with Briana Robinson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Briana, what inspires you?
What inspires me? Plants, flowers, friends, & family. Living and working with artistically energized individuals activates my personal expansion. The sweetest beings that surround me have an enormous impact on my creativity. Neighborhood walks with my baby boy, Sage, bring fresh ideas and creativity to my work. I adore the process of tattooing directly from hand picked flowers that we find on our nature strolls. So much love and inspiration goes into each tattoo. ♡

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My art is unique because of my process. Love is poured into each tattoo from the very beginning steps. I plant flowers in my yard that will make beautiful tattoos. The process leading up to the actual tattoo is just as special as the aftermath.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite spot is La Jolla Shores! Loni (my husband), Sage (my baby) and I love to pack up a peanut butter and jelly picnic and stroll up and down the beach. Seeing my sweet baby boy’s toes squish through the sand brings my heart so much joy.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Growing up, I received endless amounts of love and praise from my parents. They pushed me to be the person I am today, encouraging me to follow my heART. Today, my husband, Loni, does the same. Surrounding myself with loving friends and family keeps my excitement and creativity flowing.
